Southern Illinois Fishing Reports

Southern Illinois Fishing Report - October 2nd, 2015

‚ÄčCrab Orchard Lake: Crappie action continues to be good. Minnows and jigs in 6-8 feet of water around the brush should produce a nice mess of fish. Around the rocks and bridges about 10 feet deep is where the catfish are at. Jugs, leeches, cut bait and minnows are the baits of choice. Bass and bluegills are good, as well. Wax worms for bluegills and anything that makes noise for bass.

Baldwin Lake: Catfish are on the move and those that are being caught are small. Anglers are tossing crank bait around rip rap and catching a few bass. Bluegills are slow but will hit on meal worms or wax worms occasionally.

Horseshoe Lake: Catfish are the most popular with the anglers here. The middle of the lake and fairly deep is where they are being caught with nightcrawlers at any time of day. Crappies are slow and those that are being caught are around the brush piles about four feet deep, using minnows. Bass and bluegill fishing slow.

Carlyle Lake: White bass are good, especially in evening. Channel cats are excellent with cut bait, nightcrawlers or leeches. Cut bait also working for flatheads. Crappies improving below the dam on minnows and jigs.

Lake Murphysboro: Decent numbers and sizes of bluegills are being reported. They are fairly deep and hit best on crickets, red wigglers and wax worms. Crappies are fair using minnows around 12 feet deep. Catfish are fair and deep feeding on nightcrawlers. Bass are not really being fished for or talked about. A few are being caught using deeper diving lures.

Kinkaid Lake: Anglers are reporting that the crappie fishing is starting to pick up nicely. Minnows are the favorite bait in about 12 feet of water around submerged cover. There has not been much talk about bass and the catfish are pretty scarce as well. Bluegills are small but plentiful, hitting on crickets, wax worms and red wigglers especially off the rock faces.

Lake of Egypt: Crappie fishing is getting better. Around the points and weedbeds seems to be where they are feeding. Anglers are using minnows and jigs with regular success. Fair describes the bass fishing around weedbeds using anything plastic. Shrimp has been a good bait for catfish at night off the shoreline and around the docks. Bluegills are almost non-existent.

Little Grassy: Anglers can always catch a nice mess of bluegills using red wigglers, waxworms or meal worms. They are plentiful around weedbeds and other cover and fairly shallow. A few crappies are being taken using minnows in 15-20 feet of water. Catfish are fair around the weedbeds using nightcrawlers. There are no bass being reported or weighed in.

Rend Lake: White, striped, yellow and hybrid striped bass and channel cat are rated good. Anglers are catching the different species of bass with curly tailed jigs and large minnows. Drifting the minnows along the edge of Hwy. 154 and tossing jigs over the flat areas of the lake seem to be the most successful. Drifting with shrimp around the subimpoundment dams, rip rap areas and in the shallows is what will bring in the channel cats. Largemouths, bluegills and crappies are still slow. The largemouths that are being caught are biting on black buzzbait, pig and jig, large minnows and spinnerbaits around Jackie branch, Gun creek and Route 154. White, pink/green, chartreuse jigs and minnows are working on the crappies in 6 to 10 feet of water around pillars and over Christmas tree sets. The outlet channel below the dam and shallow coves with cover are the places where bluegills are being caught using wax worms, crickets, meal worms and red wigglers.
